Many people have asked about gear
– what are you taking?
– where did you get it from?
– what gadgets?
Very briefly and after much research this is what we are taking……..
Berghaus Jalan 70+15 for Josh
Berghaus Jalan 60+15 for Lily
Berghaus Jalan 60+15 for me but have really splashed out and got the one with 2 wheels on the bottom!
We are really trying to keep everything under the weight limit of 20kgs per person and will take the backpacks half empty to the States where we can buy a lot of stuff
Not much specialist stuff bought but was really really pleased with the fleeces we got from Rohan
(thanks for the tip Granville ) they are light weight like fleece but look like a hoody. They feel sooo comfy!
TK Maxx specials with the zips half way up the legs – I hope everyone looks as silly as us wearing them!
Saga sandals – feel like a technical update to the classic Jesus sandal but v comfy
Walking shoes – Merrell Chamaeleon Wrap – supposed to be waterproof but time will tell
Laptop – Philips X59
and the most important stuff
Universal sink plug
Aluminium plate and cup
LED Head Torch
ebay, millets and blacks – through lack of time I have just kept things simple
